The Dallas Cowboys front office, led by vice president of player personnel Will McClay, has done an excellent job of filling holes in free agency in order to advantage of their draft board. We already know some of the positions they will be looking to fill through the draft, including tight end, running back, wide receiver, cornerback, and defensive tackle.
Another thing we know is that they are looking to make things easier for Dak Prescott, and this offense with head coach Mike McCarthy taking over the play-calling duties. They also want to strengthen positions on defense and if he has a chance Dan Quinn will sprinkle in a few defensive players as well.
So let’s get this draft started as the Cowboys are now on the clock.
7-round Cowboys mock draft following free agency moves
With the No. 26th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Cowboys select:
Dalton Kincaid, Tight End, Utah
Height: 6’4 Weight: 246lbs
Career Stats: 107 receptions, 1,414 receiving yards, 13.2 yards per reception, 16 touchdowns
Kincaid has been linked to the Cowboys so often that you start to believe it isn’t going to happen much like when the Broncos took Patrick Surtain ahead of Dallas a few years ago. This time around, though, Kincaid will fall to Dallas due to concerns about a back injury that’s kept him from working out at the Combine and Utah’s pro day.
The teams that passed on him may be kicking themselves down the road, but the Cowboys, on the other hand, will be getting a fast, big-bodied, wide receiver-mentality tight end that can be a linebacker and safeties worst nightmare in man coverage.
The Cowboys get themselves that weapon that owner Jerry Jones was gushing about during the Combine.
